I hope you will be too....

A Ukrainian Easter Egg

 
 

Did you know that the Ukrainians are known for their intricate decorating of Easter eggs, which are better known as Pysanka's?

Tim and I passed this huge depiction of a Ukrainian egg in the small Alberta town of Vegreville.

So since I can't be home to show you any lovely Easter displays, ladies, this will be my contribution this year.

 
Do you have your reading glasses on, because you may need them to actually see what it is that I'm trying to show you here!
 
Can you guess what it is?
 
 
In this photo I feel certain that you can see them better....
Yes, it is Sea Gulls all flying South passing through Alberta.
There were so many that I could not possibly get them in my camera scope!
If I had not been in shock at seeing the masses I might have had the presence of mind to try the panorama setting on my camera.
 
 
I discovered that it's not only Geese that form v's when they fly.
 
So neat!
**********************************************************************************
 
Today we have at least a ten hour drive.
We are driving Fort St. John BC  to Watson Lake Yukon.
 
This is where the mountain driving begins.
The weather forecast looks good.
Who knows, I may have a chance to get some animal photos to share with you tomorrow!
I hope you're having a great day-Kimberly

Family Fun

 
Miss Lexy
 
Hello Friends
 
I'm sorry that I've been out of the loop for the last few days.
Tim and I have been having a blast enjoying and playing with our Alberta grandchildren.
 
 
We've been playing a lot of games together.
 
 
Then we had the funny face challenge too.
 
 
Fun at the park!
 
 
The grands thought Papa was much better than Nannie at pushing them high in the swings.
Naturally!
 
 
And lastly, a tuckered out family after a day of fun.
 
I'll be back with more photos tomorrow.
 
We will be leaving here then, so we have only one more day to spoil these darlings.
 
So I'd better get to it...
 
Blessings-Kimberly

A Happy Rock and a Happy Traveler

 
                                      Hello Friends
This morning we passed this cute town statue in Gladstone Manitoba.
Get it? Glad Stone/Happy Rock
 
This isn't my photo as somehow my camera got buried.
 Tim will be uncovering  it tomorrow even if he has to tear the car apart because that is when we arrive in Alberta to visit with our oldest son and his family.
And I am not going to miss getting photos of our darling grandchildren!
 
We are spending the night in Saskatoon.
I am going to do a wee bit of shopping in the morning before we take off for our son's home.
 
An elderly fellow at one of the service stations told me that there was an Alberta Clipper heading this way. I sure hope he's wrong!
 
I did want to thank all of you again for your prayers and sweet comments.
I so appreciate them!
 
Blessings-Kimberly

BTW, has anyone changed their Google password yet?
I was going to, but I thought that I had read that someone had trouble with their blog after changing their Google password.
If you would let me what you are doing about this
I would sure appreciate it.

On The Road Again

 

Well, the VW is packed and by the time you read this we will be on our way!
 
My sweet neighbour lady has our key, the house is cleaned, the alligators are hungry, and I'm ready to roll.
 
Thank you to those of you who have offered up a prayer for our safe travels.
We do appreciate it.
 
I'll be in touch-Kimberly
 
FYI-None of those beautiful VW Vans belong to me!
But wouldn't that be a wonderful way to travel?

Your Favorite Apron Was.....

 
Hippidy Hop
 
 
Yes, much to my surprise, the Easter apron was the  favourite one chosen by all of you.
 
 
The second favourite was the red one. This is my favourite of the  styles too.
I heard from  Vee  that this is also known as a pinny apron.
 Short for pinafore, I'm guessing.
We always called it a smock apron in the Mid-West were I was raised.
Now don't ask me why, because it's certainly not smocked at all.
 
This is all I have to offer today.
I've got to finish packing today and start my house cleaning.
 
I have spoken to the neighbours and all is set for them to do a house check while we are away.
I guess that is one advantage to having very close neighbours!
We have also set up other measures to see that it's well protected.
Like the moat Tim has dug around the house that is livid with alligators.
Yes, no worries this time...
Have a great day-Kimberly

Vintage Style Aprons

 
I'm happy to say that I have finished my Vintage Style aprons yesterday.
 
I am going to show you all three of my aprons and I would like for you to tell me which one you like best!

 
I didn't have a pattern for any of my Vintage Style aprons.
I copied styles from several different aprons that I already owned and put them together into something that I liked.
 
 
You probably remember that this fabric was my favourite of all of the others.
It still is!
 
 
A closer look...
 
 
This was the first one I made.
As you know, I've named it the Easter apron.
 
 
I can't help it, every time I see this one "Here Comes Peter Cottontail hop in down the Bunny trail' keeps going through my mind.
Then me, this almost sixty year old lady wearing anklets and my Mary Janes, skipping along a wooded path.
 
So crazy, I know.
 
Anyway, I had hoped to get a fourth apron finished too but my time for sewing has just run out.
 
Today I pack all the crafts/sewing items I want to take with me, get my hair done, and then get back home in time to do laundry for the last of our clothes packing for tomorrow.
 
I'm feeling dizzy just thinking about all that needs to be done.
 
It's 12:35 AM, so I'd better get off to bed if I plan to be worth two cents in the morning.
 
Blessings-Kimberly
